Drinkers helped turn pints into pounds at a beer festival in support of two charities.

The Plumbco Beer Festival was held in Wellingborough on Saturday and saw an excellent turn-out throughout the day.

These people were in such support of Glamis that I can’t thank them enough

Graham Campbell

Plumbco supplied everything needed for the day so every penny raised went to Help For Heroes and Glamis Hall in Wellingborough.

Volunteers from Glamis Hall For All made the rolls and manned the bar selling them.

Plumbco staff ran the bar and sold tickets at the entrance.

They had more than 20 real ales and lagers on offer, as well as a hog roast, two games of rugby in the afternoon and three live bands in the evening.

Football scratch cards were also sold throughout the day.

One lady who won the first prize of £200 on the raffle gave half the money back to Glamis Hall.

Graham Campbell from Glamis Hall For All, the committee which runs the centre after Wellingborough Council transferred it over to them, said: “These people were in such support of Glamis that I can’t thank them enough.”

Glamis Hall provides a lunch club for the over-50s from 11am to 2pm every Monday to Friday with a three-course meal and activities.

They also run the well-being centre which is open from 9.30am to 3pm Monday to Friday.

As well as providing a three-course meal and activities, there are other services on offer including assisted bathing for those who cannot bath or shower at home on their own.
